Autism Education Fund
The Dan River Autism Awareness 5k recently donated $25,000 from the proceeds of the race to the Autism Education Fund of the Community Foundation
of the Dan River Region.  The fund was established in 2012 with proceeds raised from the race and has awarded 8 grants since its creation.  The fund supports autism needs in our community.
Be sure to participate in next year's race to show your support for our community!  Next year's race has been scheduled for April 29, 2017.

Fund Spotlight!
Boys and Girls Club Endowment Fund  
The Boys & Girls Clubs Endowment Fund was created to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Danville Area.
   The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Danville Area has two locations, one in Danville, VA and one in Chatham, VA.  Both locations work to help youth develop the attitudes, skill values
and behaviors that enable them to succeed in life.
    The Clubs focus on three main i
mpact areas: Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Character and Leadership.  Their anch o r program is Power Hour, an hour set aside each day for new members to finish their homework, study or read.  This not only enhances their grades at school, but gives them a sense of satisfaction and achievement as well.     
Donations can be made to this fund at any time and they can be made in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Legacy Society 

The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region just launched a new giving group called The Legacy Society.
The Legacy Society is a way for The Community Foundation to honor those who have made a lasting commitment to the Dan River Region. Individuals who designate a gift to CFDRR through a will, trust, retirement plan beneficiary or other planned gift are invited to join our Legacy Society.

We are so thankful to everyone who attend our 1st Legacy Society Reception.  Our work would not be possible without you.

Retiring Board Members 
The Community Foundation would like to recognize with appreciation the retiring members of our Board of Directors for their faithful service.  
We thank them for the time and energy they invested on The Community Foundation's Board of Directors and on our Committees.  Their support was vital to helping others see the vision of our mission to improve and enrich area lives.
